Doily Cards

I was going a little stir crazy so decided to end my 'blog fasting' today. I lasted 2 weeks which isn't the entire month of March that I was aiming for but I have severely cut down my Internet usage and spent my 'free' time getting my priorities a little more in order :)

Here are some doily cards I wanted to share with you on this beautiful March Long Weekend Holiday. Inspiration came from a very CAS Card I found through Pinterest.

For a Stampin' Up! ® version of this card, please check out what I made using the Butterfly Basics Stamp Set and co-ordinating die.

Butterfly Die - Marianne Creatables
(Thanks to Lisa Lara at Splitcoast for recognising this card as a CAS favourite for the week)

Newsprint Bird - Hero Arts

Gorgeous DSP from First Edition Paper - Isabelle

Flowers from Kaiser Craft

Sentiments from STAMP-IT

Leaf Flourish - Marianne Creatables

Bird Die - Sizzix Oval Frame Bird and Pendant

Here's a gorgeous hand made bird badge from -
biRdy boUy + boo
(See Nat and I at the August Niche Market, Tram Sheds, Launceston)

That's enough blogging for today.
Happy crafting,

LOVE, LOVE, LOVE these cards Bron!!
I also know what you mean about a little break, and getting priorities in order, I feel exactly the same... hence no blogging, as i've run out of time, but tea is getting on the table on time and my home is clean!!
HE hE!!
But these cards are simply stunning, soooo love the splashes of colours and the black highlights, just gorgeous!!!!
So excited too to hear of your Niche Market news, WOW!!! Way to go, can't wait to see what you have!!
HUgs and smiles Sharnee :)

Wow, Bron - these are AMAZING!! Love them all, and you have inspired me to actually do something with the rather large paper doily collection I have! Utterly beautiful. So glad you blogged! xx

Welcome back Bron!! Love the combination of the doilies with the crumb cake cardstock, & the stitching is a perfect finishing touch. Beautiful batch of cards! Great to see your butterfly die getting a workout ... mine is feeling a bit abandoned, so I must get to work with it. :)
